FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is your fully compostable material? Is this material safe?

It is a biopolymer made from polylactic acid (PLA) that can be derived from starchy plants like corn, potatoes and sugarcane. This material is BPA free and FDA approved for food safety. A number of certifications about compostability and safety can be provided.

2. Why PLA products are sustainable?

PLA is made from plant that is annually renewable resources. PLA products can be fully composted by commercial composting facilities. However, they also can be disposed by other traditional waste management methods such as landfill.

3. Can I put your products into backyard compost?

We recommend disposing of PLA products in an industrial compost facility where they will be turned into compost and the turned to the soil. It is not recommended for use in typical backyard composting due to the lack of high temperature and consistent moisture conditions.

4. How to certify your compostable products?

Our compostable items meet the ASTM standards for compostability. They are certified to meet these standards by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) which uses scientifically based standards to determine if a product is compostable in a commercial facility. Products cannot contain the BPI logo unless they have been officially certified. So look for the words "BPI Certified" and you can be confident that your product will break down in a commercial facility.

Yes. Our CPLA products are designed with heavy duty and high heat tolerance. For instance, our cutlery allows cutting tough foods like meat or scooping ice cream.
